Further details confirmed for 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV

Latest Volkswagen ID. model is said to be entirely carbon neutral.

Volkswagen has confirmed further details of its first all-electric SUV — the ID.4.

It shares a platform with the ID.3 hatchback revealed last year and, though exact technical details have yet to be confirmed, many mechanical components including its electric powertrain are expected to feature from its stablemate.

It’s likely a 297bhp electric motor will lie under the bonnet, with a battery that can be recharged from flat to 80 per cent in under 30 minutes via fast charging technology. A range of 311 miles has been stated too.

Volkswagen has confirmed the ID.4 will be rear-driven too, with an all-wheel-drive version set to join the fray at a later date.

Fresh images of the car show it in an incredibly light camouflage, revealing its closed-off front grille, narrow headlights and plastic cladding that brings a rugged visual to the car.

It’s also said the cabin of the car will be a fully-digital affair while being described as spacious too. No word on exact dimensions yet, though.

Ralf Brandstätter, Volkswagen chief operating officer, said: “Just like the ID.3, the ID.4 will also come onto the market as a carbon-neutral vehicle. We will produce and sell the ID.4 in Europe, China and the US.”

“The outstanding aerodynamics reduce the drag coefficient, and it will boost the ID.4’s range to up to 311 miles, depending on the drive package.”

Expect a full reveal of the Volkswagen ID.4 later this year.
